The City of Hillsboro seeks written proposals from qualified vendors to provide two internet routers as further specified in this RFP
Hillsboro is building a phased municipal broadband network for our City. The FTTP network will provide high speed Internet service and VoIP telephone service to both residential and commercial end users citywide. It is the intent of the City to offer these services to each residence and business in the community through a phased network construction project that will begin in 2020. The City has approximately 38,000 households and 6,700 commercial entities. There is a mix of multi-dwelling units (MDU’s), residential, and commercial customers. The FTTP network is known as HiLight.
Reliability is a key component of these services. The City seeks sufficient hardware and software redundancy to ensure that services for citizens and businesses will be uninterrupted during maintenance events and in the event of fiber-optic cable damage, or other unforeseen issues.
